Just played the new version, It is certainly different. Haven't figured out the
"darks" yet.

In the 10K mode, I was able to get them, but only with full power to the towers,
boosted.

Sheesh! You have to have your squirt tower at level 4 before any damage. And you
need more than one at that level to get 'em all.

Ink worked here, as did the squirt towers - but you need to upgrade them.

Ink towers work against darks but it is a lame weapon
that misses about 50% of the time.

Yes, it sure is nice having the top score. :-)

Actually it is a delayed shooter (shoots behind the target)... so it
works well against
things tightly grouped and moving slowly. It's pretty
effective against iced darks. It does appear that ink is
the weapon against darks... but it is a slow weapon and
obviously you have to have several ink points in your maze
to get them all (and it has to upgraded as the game
goes on).

Squirt towers are worthless against the darks.

Not at tower level 4 or higher....they seem pretty effective at that
level.

Try the 10K level and put just squirt towers in, upgrade a bunch of them
to level 4 or higher and watch.

Yes.. you're right... they are also affective against early level
darks. But nearly impossible to get enough upgraded squirts in real
game to be effective.

Yep. I haven't been able to complete all 50 levels in the medium level yet.
